I am so excited to that Piper's first official day of Montessori school will be October 12th. As an added bonus, since she is advanced for her age and fully potty trained to boot, she will be placed in the 3-6-year-old classroom instead of the younger classroom, woohoo! I was going to have her start in September, but by State law she had to be 2 1/2 to go into the older classroom. So October 12th is the day, two days after she turns 2 1/2. We have been talking a lot about school and she is so excited. Not a day goes by that she doesn't mention it, so I know she will love it. She has mentioned that she is a little scared that she will be probably the youngest in her class, but I doubt she notices it much once she actually starts. My goodness the girls talks in complete paragraphs now, so I think she will have no problem fitting in with the older kids. Plus, they are there to help guide her, as she will help guide the younger kids at some point.
But let's get back to the shameless promotion of my "3rd" job I've taken on....
I happen to meet a wonderful woman at a breastfeeding symposium held here at the University, ironically it occurred just a few days after I finally fully weaned Piper. Yes, you read that right, Piper is off the booba! She still like to look at them, sing them songs, and lay her head on them, this morning I even caught her trying to snag a snack before I woke up, but she is officially weaned! Mama, after 2 years and 3 months, is a free woman, hahahahaha!
Anyways, at this symposium I ran into an Arbonne consultant and we hit it off instantly. We even share the same birthday, how's that for a coincidence? Well, I got to talking with her and decide what the hey, let's give this whole Arbonne thing a whirl. I know there are a lot of negative things written about Arbonne and companies like it out on the internet. It's absolutely impossible to not see something negative about everything these days...people like to bitch and moan a lot sometimes! Regardless, what I heard from those I know using their products, I haven't heard a single negative comment...that meant a lot to me. So to make a long story short, I signed up and decided to see where it could take me. I started using their skin care line and am now obsessed with it! My mom is now using the same RE9 line of products and I swear, no lie, she looks better than when she had Botox! And that was just after 3 days! Next I'm starting the 30-days to healthy living challenge to help me lose the last of my baby weight that's just been sitting there waiting to go the hell away already! I will be blogging about my experience during this process and of course will be publishing my results along the way. Remember way back when I created the header "Losing the Baby Weight"? Well now I'm going to get all kinds of serious about making that header mean something! In the meantime, as I get my program going, please feel free to check out my new Arbonne webpage and take a gander at their amazing product line.
|My new additional line of work!|
My goal is to continue to write about Piper and also my journey building my Arbonne company. So far I have had great results. I had my initial launch parties this past weekend, had a decent turnout, and earned a bit of commission. Not enough to hang up my work clothes, but enough to encourage me to keep going with it. Of course, I am nervous about this new venture, but I'm also very optimistic. My sponsor/guru is amazing and her training is top notch. I couldn't have asked for a better person to teach me the trade of independent sales. If anyone here is interested in any of the following items, then I encourage you to reach out to me!
1) Decreasing those wrinkles that your wee ones have added to your face due to the stress of trying to keep them alive without choking the shit out of them all at the same time (sorry, going through the terrible twos over here!)
2) Weight loss-- especially that baby weight you have been trying to get rid of since you birthed your perfect little angels. It doesn't come off easy, but Arbonne's plan has had astounding results for at least 7 people I know personally. I wouldn't have believed the results had I not seen them firsthand.
3) You just want to feel healthier, have more energy, sleep better, heck, even smell better, lol! Yes, there's something for all those things, too.
4) Like getting dolled up? Wow! What an amazing cosmetics line they have! It just makes you want to play with make-up like you did when you were a little girl again! Hey, and if you're a man and like make-up, then it's for you, too! No discrimination here!
5) Losing hair? Hair color washing out too quickly? Hair texture feels like you woke up with a horses mane? Yep, you can resolve those issues, too.
There is literally something for everyone be it sun protection, deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, lip balm, calming aromatherapy items, and the list just keeps going---want me to go through all 400+ items? Don't worry, I'm not!
Too boot, everything is 100% all natural ingredients. No animal testing, no dangerous and unhealthy chemicals, no whale vomit in your moisturizer! Yes, that is a genuine ingredient in some products we put on our skin on a daily basis! Hate to be the guy whose job it is to collect said vomit...hope he has a hella good pension plan!
|No, you're eyes are not lying to you!|
Everything is also 100% safe for pregnant and nursing mothers (hence why they were being featured at the breastfeeding symposium by a once RN who retired after beginning her business with Arbonne, my guru I mentioned earlier)...they even have baby products!
So, while I begin my adventure into independent business woman territory, and yes I am continuing to work full-time at my 9-5 and as a mother, I invite you to join my journey! Feel free to checkout out my business page by clicking the banner below, and I will be back later with the next installment which will focus on Piper's love of nature and the Crystal Children.
